A man went skydiving for the first time. After
listening to the instructor for what seemed like days,
he was ready to go. Excited, he jumped out of the
airplane. About five seconds later, he pulled the
ripcord. Nothing happened. He tried again. Still
nothing. He started to panic, but remembered his back-
up chute. He pulled that cord. Nothing happened. He
frantically began yanking both cords to no avail.

Suddenly he looked down, and he couldn't believe his
eyes. Another man was in the air with him, but this guy
was going up! Just as the other guy passed by, the
skydiver yelled, "Hey, do you know anything about skydiving?"

The other guy yelled back, "No! Do you know anything
about gas stoves?"

"The Love That Can't Stand to Lose You"
John 10:11

Listen to the audio broadcast!

Rick Rescorla was a decorated Vietnam War hero. But his greatest acts of heroism happened years later, on the job at the World Trade Center. As head of security for Morgan Stanley, one of the largest employers in the Twin Towers, he began to take special measures after the Trade Center bombing in 1993. Suggesting that there would be another attack, possibly coming from the air, he has become known as the man who predicted September 11th. He began regular drills for Stanley's 2,700 employees in emergency evacuation procedures. Morgan Stanley had offices from the 44th to the 74th floors of Tower Two. When Tower One was hit on that awful September 11, there seemed to be no reason to get out of Tower Two, except for Rick Rescorla's training.

Sixteen minutes after Tower One was hit, a plane crashed into Tower Two. The explosion knocked Rick Rescorla to the floor. Even there, he grabbed a bullhorn and he yelled for people to stay calm and to head for the stairwells. Then he began to go from floor to floor, looking for people he could save. With both towers burning out of control, Rick stayed in the building, talking the last of his colleagues down the stairwells. One of the last ones out was a Morgan Stanley executive who said, "Rick, you have to get out of here, too." His answer: "I will, John, as soon as we get everyone out." Rick Rescorla died that day at Ground Zero, but only after he had saved the lives of nearly 2,700 people.

I'm Ron Hutchcraft and I want to have A Word With You today about "The Love That Can't Stand to Lose You."

It was Jesus Christ who said, "Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends." (John 15:13) The sacrifice of one man to save many on September 11th, has given those people the opportunity to live possibly many more years on earth; thirty, forty, fifty more years. The sacrifice of one Man on a cross on Skull Hill has given every man and woman on this planet the opportunity to live forever; including you and me. And that Man was no one less than God's one and only Son. In the words of Scripture, "...they crucified the Lord of glory." (1 Corinthians 2:8)

Jesus summed up the unspeakable sacrifice He was about to make in these words from John 10:11, our word for today from the Word of God: "I am the good shepherd, and the good shepherd lays down His life for the sheep." Jesus didn't come just to teach us a wonderful way to live or provide us a great example. He came to give His life. And you are one of the reasons God's only Son allowed Himself to be nailed to a criminal's cross. I'm one of those reasons. He loves you so much that He doesn't want to lose you.

And why this sacrifice? There was no other way to rescue you and me from the death penalty for the sins of our life. We've hijacked our life from the God who gave it to us. We've done so many things our way instead of His way. A death penalty can only be paid one way - somebody has to die. I know who deserves to die for my sins. I do. But in the greatest act of love in human history, Jesus did the dying for every God-defying thing I've ever done and that you've done.

And now He keeps going back to rescue one more from the awful judgment that's coming. Today, even now, He's come to offer you an opportunity to be saved. But it's a rescue you must choose by grabbing the Rescuer as if He's your only hope. He is. And while you may appreciate Jesus and agree with Jesus, that's not enough to have your sins forgiven. You've got to pin all your hopes on Jesus, like one of those people stranded on their roof after Hurricane Katrina; wrapping themselves around that rescuer from above.

The price Jesus paid for your rescue could not have been higher. That's what makes what you do with Jesus so serious; so decisive in terms of whether eternity means heaven or hell. Your decision about Jesus is your decision about where you will be forever.

My prayer is that you won't wait another day before you tell Jesus, "I'm Yours." This could be your Jesus-day, your rescue day. We've set up our website to help you experience His love for yourself. Would you visit us there at If you'd like a printed copy of my booklet called Yours For Life, just call for it at 877-741-1200.

After the price God paid to rescue you, is it any wonder there's one thing upon which He will base your eternity - "What did you do with My Son?"

An atheist complained to a friend, "Christians have their
special holidays, such as Christmas and Easter; and
Jews celebrate their holidays, such as Passover and Yom
Kippur. EVERY religion has its holidays. But we atheists, "he said,
"have no recognized national holidays. It's an unfair discrimination."
His friend replied, "Well... Why don't you celebrate April first?"

*Someone who destroys or defaces public or private property either
willfully or ignorantly is a vandal. Near synonyms include:
wrecker, saboteur, hooligan, delinquent, plunderer, looter,
destroyer, Democrat, and pillager.

The first vandals were a Germanic tribe, which in 455 A.D. sacked
Rome. While this was perhaps the pinnacle of their destructive
behaviors, the Vandals earned a reputation as destroyers of
civilization for looting and sacking during this period.

The word vandal appears in English in the mid-1500s. It commemorates
the Vandals whose name was from the Late Latin vandalus, likely a
Latinized tribal name derived from the word wanderer.

*Glass is not a crystalline solid, but a random jumble of molecules.
Because of its random structure it does not have a clear melting
temperature and there is no temperature where it can be said to be
definitely solid. Instead, it gradually becomes harder as it cools.

Historians have pointed out that the glass in some centuries-old
windows is thicker at the bottom, as if the glass had slumped over the years.

Scientists still debate whether room-temperature glass is a solid or
some other state of matter. But according to one study, to see the
flow of cool glass we would have to wait ten billion times the age of
the universe. So those ancient windows are thicker at the bottom
because they were made that way, not because of any later flowing of the glass.

More about how slowly glass flows:

Verse of the Day

* * * Four Important Things To KNOW: #1) For ALL (Americans, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Buddhist, Asians, Presbyterians, Europeans, Baptist, Brazilians, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc.) have sinned & fall short of the glory of God. #2) For the wages of above (see #1) are DEATH (Hell, eternal separation from God, & damnation) but the Gift (free & at no charge to you) of God (Creator, Jehovah, & Trinity) is Eternal Life (Heaven) through (in union with) Jesus Christ (God, Lord, 2nd Person of The Trinity, Messiah, Prince of Peace & Savior of the World). #3) For God so greatly loved & dearly prized the world (Americans, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Buddhist, Asians, Presbyterians, Europeans, Baptist, Brazilians, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc.) that He even gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, that whosoever (anyone, anywhere, anytime - while still living) believes (trust in, relies on, clings to, depends completely on) Him shall have eternal (everlasting) life (heaven). #4) Jesus said: "I am THE WAY, THE TRUTH, & THE LIFE. No one (male/female - American, Muslim, Jew, Catholic, Hindu, Buddhist, Asian, Presbyterian, European, Baptist, Brazilian, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc. ) comes (arrives) to the Father (with GOD in Heaven) EXCEPT BY (through) ME (no other name). *** This wonderful loving GOD gives you the choice - - - (Rev. 3:20) {Please note that church membership, baptism, doing good things, etc. are not requirements for becoming a Christian - however they are great afterwards!!!} *** Jesus said, "Wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction (Hell, damnation, eternal punishment), and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life (Heaven, eternal happiness, forever with God), and only a few find it.

But these are written so that you may
believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the
Son of God, and that by believing in
Him you will have life. Jn 20:31

Seek the Lord while He may be found;
call on Him while He is near. Let the
wicked forsake his way and the evil
man his thoughts. Let him turn to the
Lord, and He will have mercy on him,
and to our God, for He will freely
pardon. "For My thoughts are not
your thoughts, neither are your ways
My ways," declares the Lord. "As the
heavens are higher than the earth, so
are My ways higher than your ways
and My thoughts than your thoughts.
As the rain and the snow come down
from heaven, and do not return to it
without watering the earth and making
it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed
for the sower and bread for the eater,
so is My word that goes out from My
mouth: It will not return to Me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire and
achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
You will go out in joy and be led forth
in peace; the mountains and hills will
burst into song before you, and all the
trees of the field will clap their hands.
Instead of the thornbush will grow the
pine tree, and instead of briers the myrtle
will grow. This will be for the Lord's
renown, for an everlasting sign, which
will not be destroyed." Is 55

O Lord, you have searched me and you
know me. You know when I sit and when
I rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying
down; you are familiar with all my ways.
Before a word is on my tongue you know
it completely, O Lord. You hem me in -
behind and before; you have laid your
hand upon me. Such knowledge is too
wonderful for me, too lofty for me to attain.

Where can I go from your Spirit? Where
can I flee from your presence? If I go up
to the heavens, you are there; if I make
my bed in the depths, you are there.

If I rise on the wings of the dawn,
if I settle on the far side of the sea,
even there your hand will guide me,
your right hand will hold me fast.

If I say, "Surely the darkness will hide
me and the light become night around
me," even the darkness will not be dark
to you; the night will shine like the day,
for darkness is as light to you. For you
created my inmost being; you knit me
together in my mother's womb. I praise
you because I am fearfully and wonderfully
made; your works are wonderful, I know
that full well. My frame was not hidden
from you when I was made in the secret
place. When I was woven together in the
depths of the earth, your eyes saw my
unformed body. All the days ordained
for me were written in your book before
one of them came to be.

How precious to me are your thoughts,
O God! How vast is the sum of them!
Were I to count them, they would
outnumber the grains of sand. When
I awake, I am still with you. Search me,
O God, and know my heart; test me
and know my anxious thoughts. See
if there is any offensive way in me,
and lead me in the way everlasting.
Ps 139

But indeed for this purpose I have raised you up,
that I may show My power in you, and that My
Name may be declared in all the earth. Ex 9:16

When I survey the wondrous cross
On which the Prince of Glory died,
My richest gain I count but loss,
And pour contempt on all my pride.

Were the whole realm of nature mine,
That were a present far too small:
Love so amazing, so divine,
Demands my soul, my life, my all.
- - Isaac Watts
